I purchased a domain at My address is I built some webpages using synthasite - downloaded the zip files - unziped them on my computer - uploaded them to the ftp and nothing shows up on my url? dreamhost says that this is a problem with the PHP, but I thought I would ask the larger synthasite group.
Please help

Hi Alan

If you could email, we can help you troubleshoot your problem more closely.

My question to you, however, is:

Why wouldn't you want us to host your website? It's free, and whenever you make changes, it's instantly reflected when you click update - no downloads and zip files. I'd love to hear from you on this.

Hi alan

In addition to what Vinny has suggested, can you check that your host is running PHP 5.2x or higher?

We hope you will consider hosting with us - no charge and no hassle!
